The popular festivity of the Crosses of May in Cordoba features numerous crosses made from flowers which are installed throughout the streets and squares of the city. These creations then take part in a competition organised by the town council.

This is an old religious tradition. The flower-covered crosses are set up in squares, alleys and open spaces. They are also occasionally decorated with typical silk 'mantones' or shawls, multicoloured throws and other popular items. The neighbourhood associations and social clubs are in charge of making sure that Cordoba is a riot of colour and festive high spirits. The crosses can be visited all day long, and at night the atmosphere continues with concerts, music and dancing.
